Banking giant Barclays has announced the closure of another Suffolk branch. 

The company is set close its Sudbury branch in Market Hill on July 6.

Barclays has said the reasoning behind the store closures is due to its customers using online banking more frequently. 

It comes after the company announced the closure of its Newmarket and Mildenhall branches last month

HSBC also announced it will be closing its Sudbury branch later this year

The mayor of Sudbury described the bank closure as a "very sad day" for the town

A Barclays spokeswoman said: "Our customers’ behaviour has changed significantly in recent years, with the majority now choosing online banking. 

"This is reflected at Sudbury branch, and as we adapt, we are finding new ways to support our customers by maintaining our community presence with options for customers who still require in-person support.

“In Sudbury we plan to open a Barclays Local – a pop-up cashless banking site where customers can meet a colleague face-to-face for banking support, as they would in a branch and without the need to travel.

"We are currently working with the local community to identify a suitable location and will announce details once confirmed.”
